Harlequin HQCD 154 : Xavier Cugat

Live from the Statler-Hilton & Roseland Hotels

Genre: Latin American

Rare 1950s broadcasts from top New York hotels find Cugat's superb orchestra at its peak - magnificent, full toned, swinging arrangements primarily of mambos and rumbas. Some tour-de-force versions here including perhaps the hottest El Manisero since it broke Latin American music in 1930.
